    How to make the PDF show empty fields?

    Asked by ARMyers on December 10, 2015 at 03:18 PM

    I've created a Form for daily reports submitted by field staff. If they don't complete every field (not all are required), the PDF Design Report is completely out of whack - because the PDF isn't showing blank fields. Is there a way to correct that?

    To do that, you should go to Submissions > little gearwheel at the top

    Once you click on it, you will see the option to autohide the empty fields - you should uncheck it.

    Once you make this change, the PDF will always contain all fields.

    Do let us know how it goes.
